An almost weekly assortment of musical oddities purchased or given to POF.
CHILDREN – Death Tribe 12″+mp3 (kemado) – One sided 12″ with etching on the b-side. The a-side is one long (11 min) epic metal track that could double as a CHILDREN sampler. Sounds like a cross between Slayer meets Saviours.
CHILDREN – Hard Times Hangin At The End Of The World… (kemado) First full length release from this New York City headbanging retro metal act, featuring Early Man’s drummer Adam Bennati, appropriately, on drums. Too bad it wont play in my PowerBook.
CROCODILES – Summer of Hate (fat possum) – I already bought this on vinyl, but received a CD of it in the mail to promote their upcoming gig with Holy Fuck on June 10th at Lounge on Elm St.
DOUBLE DAGGER – More 12″ + mp3 (thrill jockey)
INTELLIGENCE – Deuteronomy 12″ (inthered)
This week from PUKEKOS, I downloaded mp3 zip files rare, out-of-print CDrs and 7″s of Glass Candy, Kynfe Hyts, Murder City Devils, Party Fowl, Thee Oh Sees, These Are Powers, Vivian Girls, The VSS, Wavves and Yellow Fever. Great resource, when you don’t want to play that oop vinyl. When I have time, I am going to d/l files from !!!, Black Pus, Gogogo Airheart, Iran, Out Hud and more.
Not Music, but…
Jacob at Good Records pointed out some dvds that I might dig, and of course he was right. Oscilloscope Pictures is an independent film distribution company operated through OSCILLOSCOPE LABROTATORIES which is run by Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys. As of now they have 14 films in production or already released. I purchased the first and fifth releases. One is a basketball documentary, GUNNIN’ FOR THAT #1 SPOT, directed by Adam Yauch. The other is FRONTRUNNERS, which follows an elite high school election at Stuyvesant High School in Manhattan, directed by Caroline Suh.
